For the two pizza restaurants in this assignment I chose two very successful sole proprietorships in my city instead of chain or corporate restaurants.     They are Lisa’s Pizza and Sam’s Pizza.   Both of these have been a mainstay in this community for over 30 years.   Their info is as follows.

Name of Restaurant | Sam’s Pizza | Lisa’s Pizza |
| | |
Small cheese only | $9.99 | $7.99 |
Medium cheese only | $11.99 | $9.99 |
Large cheese only | $13.99 | $10.99 |
| | |
Price per topping small | $1.50 | $1.00 |
Price per topping medium | $2.00 | $1.25 |
Price per topping Large | $2.50 | $1.50 |
| | |
Small specialty (5 toppings) | $15.99 | $10.00 |
Medium specialty (5 toppings) | $17.99 | $12.99 |
Large specialty (5 toppings) | $19.99 | $14.99 |
| | |
Small 5 toppings (customer’s choice) | $17.49 ($9.99 + 5($1.50)) | $12.99 ($7.99 + 5($1.00)) |
Medium 5 toppings (customer’s choice) | $21.99 ($11.99 + 5($2.00)) | $16.24 ($9.99 + 5($1.25)) |
Large 5 toppings (customer’s choice) | $26.49 ($13.99 + 5($2.50)) | $18.49 $10.99 + 5($1.50)) |

To find the area of each type of pizza the following formulas were used.

The pizzas from Lisa’s Pizza are circle in shape to I used 3.14(pi) times the radius of the pizza squared.
Small 12 inches = 3.14(6) ^2               A=113.04 square inches
Medium 16 inches=3.14(8) ^2           A=200.96 square inches
Large 20 inches =3.14(10) ^2             A=314 square inches

The pizzas from Sam’s Pizza are rectangular in shape so I used the length times the width formula.
Small 12 in x 8 in                                   A = 12(8) = 96 square inches
Medium 16in x 12 in                             A = 16(12) = 192 square inches
Large 20 in x 16 in                                 A = 20(16) = 320 square inches

To find the price per square inch I divided the total cost by the number of square inches.

Name of Restaurant | Sam’s Pizza | Price per sq. in | Lisa’s Pizza | Price per sq. in...
